My Greatest Symphony Hall Event…….
It was January, 1973, and I was practicing on my Alexander CC tuba in the large tuning room right off the stage in Symphony Hall. It was vacation period so no one else was in the building, save for the man at the stage door. I was all alone, and frustrated, thinking about Jesus, thinking about my life, but not really knowing what to do — where to turn, to relieve my frustrations. I set my tuba down, and, realizing that no one could hear me, and in total honesty, I yelled out, “Jesus! If you are real, will you let me know?!” Instantly, His Presence FILLED that room, and I said, “You are real…….” And He has never left me. I found out that He IS REAL, and that He HAS RISEN FROM THE DEAD, and is now ALIVE! Why don’t you try yelling? He is there. He waits. Listen to His words:
“Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door,
I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me.”
